Hey kids, favicon!

05 August 2017

Finally fixed those 404s from browsers looking for favicon.ico on this blog.

  1. Google image search for images where "reuse with modification" is allowed.

  2. Found this high-quality lab mouse SVG image.

  3. Opened it in GNU Image Manipulation Program, posterized, cropped to a square. Kept the transparent background.

  4. Just went to realfavicongenerator.net and did what it says, and added the resulting images and markup to the site.

That's about it. Now there's a little mouse in the browser tab (and it should do the right thing with the icons if someone pins it to their home screen on mobile.)
